We have had a glorious couple of weeks in Devon, the sun has shone, the grass has grown and the hounds have enjoyed every minute of it. Festives pregnany is now into its 44th day and she is seemingly enjoying the position of authority its given her amongst the other hounds, and its quite funny to see her now getting pole position on the best sofas where as before hand she was always relegated to the dog beds! Funny how the hounds just "know", and are happy to let her get her own way. Shes also taken to stick collecting (se photo below)...a new hobby for her, and perhaps part of her hormonal changes! The lovely warm dry weather has also been a bonus for meeting prospective new puppy owners, and we have enjoyed alfresco tea, in the spring sun, several times last week with some lovely families.
Its not just the hounds who have enjoyed the warm weather, Reggie and Mabel our resident lawn mowing shetlands have also been out and about to the shows over the last few weeks, amassing all sorts of awards and qualifiers.
